If you have not gone, you are missing out.

Well have a good time :)

You do realize that you could be condemning 100's of fish tanks to a horrible death because
we can't get expert help now :eek: :eek: :eek:

I'm missing out! As a retiree on a fixed income with some medical issues, my going isn't likely to happen. I enjoy those things vicariously by reading about them here and in other forums.

When you get to the Pearling Plant Gates of Heaven, St. Planter will ask and judge thee.

The Seven Levels of Algae and Eternal Damination otherwise........

Some of you are already there, but there is a path to redemption.

"And once thee hath found that path to redemption, thee shall spread the message to the fartherest lands and in many tongues.............."

Sell plants on line and then that can pay for the trip.

I think most of us will have to be off the internet for a few days as we study our Bibles for the rest of those passages. I vaguely remember reading that back when I was 8, but where????

Re: I'll be in Florida this week

I collected wood galore today. Best pieces I've ever found.
I'll donate them to the auction at the Tampa Bay aquarium society tomorrow.

More wood and shallow low water in the rivers etc will be ideal, not much plants at the Lower Suwanne due to such low water(down 2ft, which is a lot there).

Lizard tail was growing very well, as where the swamp lilies.

And deer flies where everywhere, I got bit once by a skeeter.

The driftwood place off 98 in Inglis,FL is now gone, the building, everything, it's nothing a gravel lot now. I went by looking for the building 4x.

Tom's is still in business though in Waldo, FL.

The storms missed the Keys, so it looks like the Marine part will go well.
I'm heading to High Springs/RumIsland and Tom's Monday and then giving a talk for the Tampa Bay Aquarium society.

Regards,
Tom Barr

Re: I'll be in Florida this week

Any chance of recording these or future lectures and making them available online?

Hey Tom, where are you finding these fantastic pieces of driftwood? I'm going to be cave diving in the High Springs region in August, and would love to get away for a morning to see if I can find a few nice pieces for my own tank...

Cheers,

Jeremy

Try Tom's Cyress off of 301 in Waldo, cannot miss it.
He sells pretty much most things you might find.

Otherwise, nab what you can.

Go to Blue Hole in Ichetucknee, it's a good cave dive site. I did my reserch in that spring bowl.
